Scenic Chairlift Rides

Claim a chair and experience the beauty - and the fun.

Closed for the season - we will experience the fun in Spring 2023!

Ski lifts, it turns out, aren't just for skiers. When summer and fall roll around at The Highlands, we treat our guests to a uniquely beautiful perspective with a ride on the Heather Express chairlift. Breathtaking panoramic views of crystal blue waters, lush green grounds, and the brilliant fall foliage colors lend a stunning backdrop to your summer or fall visit to The Highlands. Look around — youʼll be able to see Little Traverse Bay, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and as far as the Mackinac Bridge on a clear day. Claim a chair and experience the beauty — and the fun!
